2018 NHL Entry Draft: The New York Rangers Select Simon Kjellberg 163rd Overall

With their final pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft the New York Rangers selected 18 year old Swedish defender Simon Kjellberg from the Swedish SuperElit League. A big left handed shooter, he stands at 6’3 190lbs, Kjellberg had 4-5-9 in 43 games with Rogel BK J20.

There’s really not much to say here about Kjellberg, his numbers in Sweden are unimpressive and it seems that he was selected for his size and his size alone, thus capping a rather uninspiring second day of the draft for the Rangers.
